Your Lakes &
Lunesdale Escapes and New House Caravan Park is a quiet, family-run business based in Cowan Bridge, which is situated minutes from the beautiful market town of Kirkby Lonsdale. With the rolling Dales to the east and the dramatic Lake District to the west, we are spoilt for views come rain or shine. In this lush valley, New House Caravan Park began its humble beginnings as the family-run cattle and sheep farm, New House Farm. The farm was run by Colin (Thomas and Tracey’s stepdad) and his father Lawrence. In 1980 the father-son partnership made the decision to diversify, and a five pitch caravan field was opened. This proved popular, so it steadily grew into a 50 pitch site aided by the addition of toilet and shower facility in 1997. Over the years, Colin has built up a loyal caravanning community, many of which hold seasonal pitches. These guests return year after year to their caravan haven based here in the Lune Valley. Fast forward to 2021, Thomas and Tracey joined Colin in the running of the site with the ambition of developing the caravan park into a unique holiday experience - Lunesdale Escapes. Lunesdale Escapes offers luxury camping stays in three beautiful bell tents and a stunning holiday home, also on located on site – New House Cottage.
Soak up the
natural beauty of the Lune Valley
Our guests enjoying the great outdoors is central to everything we do... Tracey and her husband, Nat know a thing or two about camping and what can make the experience extra special (and much easier!). That’s why we like our bell tent guests to pack minimally, turn up and just relax – that’s what it is all about after all! We have done all the hard work for you. No erecting a tent, no packing a cool box and no pumping up an air bed. Take full advantage of these luxuries and immerse yourself into the great outdoors without the faff!
